I'm pondering signing up for sections 40-43 (Asiatic background) ...two questions -- any suggestions for how to read the chart on page 333? And are we reading footnotes if they are information rather than just citations?

Thanks!
Colleen

Hi Kevin,
I'm sorry it is taking a little bit more than expected to complete my section!
I already recorded it all, I'm at the reviewing step, so please let me have a little more time...

Emanuela
Not a problem!
What? What's that? Why are you shouting?

Do. Or do not. There is no try.

Just wanted to see if I could get an extension on chapter 2: I've been working on recording but we've also been moving, so things have taken a little longer than anticipated. Should have the remaining sections done in a few weeks!

Of course. Thank you for letting us know!

I don't see any conceivable way of 'reading' the chart on p. 333. At least not a reading that could be understood. I would eliminate it and the sentence above it that introduces the language groups.

As to footnotes, I would eliminate them, too, unless you feel that a specific footnote adds real clarity to the reading.

Hope you sign up!

I've got it, Emanuela. It's too late to proof it tonight where I live, but I'll get to it in the morning. :)

That must be my mistake. But, heck, all your recordings are perfect anyway!

Ha!
Thank you so much.
It is really not my first project, but glad you liked it!

I must have confused you with someone else, perhaps on another project, who said the file they were working on was their first. :lol: It was very enjoyable, and I think you and the other volunteers whose first language isn't English are very brave to read material like this in English. I've volunteered to do a couple of short texts in French, my second language, but never a long chapter like this.
